Do you want to find all emails from a specific sender in your Gmail account? There are a couple of ways to do this, and we’ll show you how to use them on Gmail’s web interface and mobile apps.

Sort Emails by Sender in Gmail on the Web

On Gmail’s web version, there are two ways to sort emails by a specific email sender. Both ways are explained below.

Use an Existing Email to Sort Emails by Sender

One way to sort emails by sender is to find at least one email from your sender in your Gmail inbox. Then, you can use a right-click option to find all emails from that sender.

To do this, launch Gmail in a web browser on your Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer.

When Gmail loads, find an email from your sender. Then, right-click the email and select “Find Emails From” from the menu.
